A little bit about us... 

We offer Pre-School education for children aged from 2 to 5 during term time. We also offer extended care, Mighty Oaks offers before and after school care for children attending, Acorn Pre-School, Shefford Lower School and Robert Bloomfield Academy.

Acorn Pre-School has a long history, we were established in 1971 and sessions were held in the Baptist Church Hall, Bedford Road and then later in the Methodist Church Hall, Ampthill Road. In January 2006 the Pre-School Committee were approached to build a new school which would enable us to improve our facilities as well as provide wrap around care to fit in with new government plans.

Our new premises officially opened on 26th April 2008. This is a purpose built, purpose designed building for our Pre-School and Out of School club which has enabled us to offer even better Pre-School facilities to the community of Shefford and the surrounding villages.
